When create css failed, before call css_free_rcu_fn, we remove the css
id and exit the percpu_ref, but we will do these again in
css_free_work_fn, so they are redundant. Especially the css id, that
would cause problem if we remove it twice, since it may be assigned to
another css after the first remove.

tj: This was broken by two commits updating the free path without
synchronizing the creation failure path. This can be easily
triggered by trying to create more than 64k memory cgroups.
